The girls went back to school this morning after winter break! I kind of think they were glad to get back (they spent 12 days with me!). Of course we had some running around - DD#1 & 2's bus was late, DD#2 couldn't find her phone and had to leave without it (horrors!) and DD#3 couldn't find her jacket! I had to get up earlier and I'm a little tired now, but it's good to get back. I had my healthy breakfast and packed my lunch!
I did pretty good with the exercise over the weekend. I went to the varsity basketball game with DD#2. Her former Freshman team mate (the girl who is 6'5") scored 33 points! I read on the website that she scored 35 pts. on Saturday! If only she could play on the Freshman team too!
Anyway, I woke up Saturday morning and did the 7 min. upper body and 5 min. lower body resistance band workout. It was a pretty good workout! DD#2 had a game and DD#1 went with me so we could pick up her boyfriend after the game. They lost the game, but did pretty good. The team they played was undefeated and had been winning by at least 30 points! DD#2 lost 34-22. They were beating them the first half, but I guess the team woke up and got "mad"! They were very aggressive. One girl actually tried to jump over DD#2 and knocked her down. She was bruised and sore after that game! She was also a little disappointed. She's been working so hard on her own during the holidays and did really well the couple of practices before the game. The coach still started the "other" girl who did nothing over the holidays (her own admittance) and was slow and clearly out of shape during the game. DD#2 still played a lot, but it's not the same as "starting". I told DD#2 (I heard a NFL football player say this over the weekend) that "a champion works hard when no one is watching" and all her hard work will pay off, so not to be disappointed. Plus it's really kept her in shape and now she's skinny!
So, she still wanted to run yesterday. She had 2 friends with her and DH took them. I went to the hilly outside trail with DD#3 and my sister (and 3 dogs). I told my sister I was going to run and I did my 1 min walk/3 min. run (7 x). It was really, really, hard on the hills. I actually did it about 8 or 9 times. I ended up looking for my sister and DD#3 on the trail and ran/walked for over 45 mins.!
DD#2 doesn't have practice tonight. Her coach is a Notre Dame fan and wants to watch the game (come on coach they need the practice!). Anyway, I'll run/walk again tonight and do my resistance band tomorrow & Wednesday and that will be my first "week" of the new year.
I did ok with eating, but I'm clearly not back on plan! We'll see how it looks on Wednesday.
